Basic Buttercream Frosting Recipe

Buttercream Frosting

1 lb. confectioner’s sugar
1/4 lb. butter (marg)
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
3-4 tablespoons milk

Cream 1/3 sugar with butter and salt in large bowl. Blend extract, 2 tablespoons milk and rest of sugar. Gradually stir in rest of milk until it looks spreadable.

If you don’t want it to be quite as sweet, replace butter with cream cheese. (4 oz. cream cheese – 1/8 lb. butter)
